April Already!!!

It's been nice weather for Spring planting and Gardening around here. My hubby bought me a new bike to ride.  I have had my eye on this beauty for quite sometime. It seems as though it is harder to stay on it and balance myself. I did not fall off it until I took it out for a second time yesterday evening.  I think I am afraid of this bike because it is kinda cumbersome for a clumsy gal like me!  LOL - Have a great weekend. Leave some comments it won't hurt. Show some blog loving!!!

Welcome Spring

I was late in decorating for Easter this year.  Seems like every past holiday we had there was a death in our family so I was not in the mood.  And we lost my Aunt suddenly last Sunday.   We have been trying to get our yard and garden ready for Spring but, have not been able too.  First, it was rain and now it is cooler temperatures and a little wind.  I am glad we did not plant anything because they said we were going to get a frost.  I am just ready to clean the two patios and upper balcony and sit back and relax and enjoy coffee, tea, and wine outside and read some books I have recently bought.  Here are a few pictures of our Easter decor. Sorry, for the duplicate pics. I made myself a little Easter Basket! And there is a picture of my Milk Bottles which I decorate for each occasion.

Valentines Day Weekend

I'm participating in Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps On The Porch.

What are your plans?  Do you celebrate or is it just another day?  I will be waiting patiently to see who responds! LOL! I love celebrating every holiday big or small, but everyday is Valentine's Day with my husband - he is the BEST! February is a busy month for us as we both celebrate our Birthdays and other family members, friends, and our dog - Benji!  I just wanted to take a moment to share a few pics from past Valentines.  I love creating tablescapes and pull out dishes, chargers, stemware, and other decorations I have accumulated over the years.  I also peruse my collection of cookbooks to find the perfect meal or dessert to prepare. Sometimes, if I am running short on time I will run to Eatzies, Central Market for our Entrees and then order cupcakes from my local bakery and decorate them myself.  I made Chocolate Sheet cake and cut into hearts one year and they were yummy. I also made Chocolate covered strawberries for the occasion. Even packaged candy can be pretty in a candy dish.  Make it pretty and keep it simple or go all out. It's not that hard to do! Enjoy all the many pics. And if you will notice my tablescape was sometimes set just for the two of us because it is just us most times.  Secondly, all of your dishes do not have to match or be a set.  Mix it up and have fun with it!
